ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno breaks down the best in MLS with his weekly awards.

It has been a brutal few weeks for the unofficial Major League Soccer goalkeepers' union, a spell that has been rife with basic errors by some of the presumed best in the league.

Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando, the presumptive No. 3 goalkeeper on the U.S. national team depth chart, has been guilty of several giveaways out of the back that have led directly to goals.

The San Jose Earthquakes' David Bingham, who has also been getting looks with the national team, has endured some horrific...

U.S. Hot List: Dempsey, Morris impress but defensive injuries are a concern

LA's struggles continued as Clint Dempsey and Jordan Morris both scored to earn three points for Seattle.

One U.S. national team mainstay made consecutive Premier League starts for the first time since August, while another is heading back to England's top flight after a productive detour in the second tier. In MLS, meanwhile, several attacking players are showing off their sharpness, but there's also worrying injury news for Bruce Arena, both at home and overseas.

Earnie Stewart feels the United States have all the tools to become a world power in soccer.
Herculez Gomez shares his thoughts on how the United States would factor into a three-nation World Cup bid.

One U.S. starter is rounding into form. Another just returned from a long layoff, and several youngsters are pushing for inclusion either on Bruce Arena's roster for June's World Cup qualifiers against Trinidad and Tobago and at Mexico, the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July, or both. 

The priority, of course, is the former.

"We have to get results in these two games," Arena said last week on a conference call with reporters.

"We're going to stick to the group of players we had in the last camp and...

Tottenham the latest with Pulisic interest; Dybala tops Barca wish list

Herculez Gomez doesn't buy the idea that Christian Pulisic is the future of world football.

The football world's gossip mill is in full swing, and Transfer Talk is monitoring the whispers ahead of all the summer moves. Check out the latest deals here.

Spurs are latest with Pulisic interest

Up until now Liverpool have been the main Premier League club with mooted interest in Borussia Dortmund and U.S. sensation Christian Pulisic, mainly because of the Jurgen Klopp connection.

But the Daily Mail reports that Pulisic's performances for BVB have begun to spark interest elsewhere, with...

U.S. Hot List: John Brooks, Geoff Cameron hit form at the right time

The FC panel examine the arguments for and against a joint 2026 World Cup bid from the U.S. perspective.

Back in February, United States coach Bruce Arena told ESPN FC that with World Cup qualifying in full swing, he wasn't looking to introduce many new faces into the American squad.

"We're trying to cut it down, not add to it," Arena said at the time.

That approach figures to remain in place when the U.S. reconvenes in suburban Denver at the end of next month to prepare for a June 3 friendly against Venezuela and two tough qualifiers against Trinidad and Tobago and in Mexico.

Depending on how...
